"TELL HER NO,NO NO"
Having many conversations the past month with ultra conservatives, along will ultra liberals, teapartyers, Obama lovers and even pedestrians, one thing I find they all seem to have in common. [really refreshing]
No one mentioned voting "YES" on any levy, they may had a multitude of different reasons but I could not find even one person who would support the Lake Board of Developmental Disabilities levy. This levy is not a new levy, just a "replacement levy" the simple fact is if your house is worth $100,000 you currently pay $58.00 a year. Now if the levy passes that same homeowner will be paying $104.00 quite an increase I believe this will total up to an additional 8 million dollars to the agency a year.
I truly care about the people this agency supports, but I must add "what planet are these board members living on."
The economy is just barely starting to rebound, and no one has a Chrystal ball to forecast the next year.
The best way I can explain this is the head administrator makes over $135,000 would this person be willing to take a $65,000 cut in pay? Ridiculous you say?
No more than with this levy property owners will be expected to increase their tax bill.
Governments at all levels were supposed to work for the people, remember when they were called public servants? Somewhere along the line it has now changed the people are now expected to work for the government. 83% of there budget goes to wages and benefits.
I could have chosen any money issue or levy but this one has it all.
A clientele that is at the public mercy, along with an unbelievable request to all of us in this economy.
Please feel free to comment on any Issue or levy.
Anybody got an idea or solution?
